Avoid Dehydration. Simple Tips from Dr. Melanie

Better to Prevent Dehydration than have to Rehydrate!

It's hot out there! (At least here in the Southwest!). Living Pure Chiropractic wants to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable summer!  
Balinese Ginger, Lemongrass Elixir 

Dr. Melanie's simple strategies for rehydration and preventing unnecessary loss of fluids!
  1. Drink enough filtered water until your urine is a light yellow color.
  2. Nourish yourself on rehydrating foods such as cucumbers, tomatoes, sprouts, watermelon, cantaloupe, watercress, kale, celery and spinach. A blended raw veggie juice adds a taste advantage over plain old water and supplies you with powerful antioxidants. I recommend only incorporating a small amount of fruit to minimize the sugar content in your drink.
  3. Avoid the popular electrolyte sports drinks since they typically contain high fructose corn syrup and artifical sweeteners and colors, not to mention a heaping amount of sugar! These drinks not only fail to keep you hydrated but also mess with your body's production of human growth hormone. The sugar will also contribute to tooth erosion over time. There are some decent electrolyte sports drinks sold by healthcare professionals that do not contain the dangerous ingredients I mentioned and still supply the nutrients to replenish your fluids and prevent muscle cramping. Ask your natural healthcare professional or email me at
  4. Prepare a simple natural electrolyte drink: Mix organic blueberry and/or pomegranate juice with mineral or soda water and add a teaspoon of unrefined Himalayan sea salt. Voila! A tasty, refreshing alternative to boring water.
  5. Fresh coconut water is a great option since it naturally contains a high level of electrolytes without the risk of fructose elevation.
  6. Act consciously! It's easy to get wrapped up in a tennis match for example, but listen to your body! Severe symptoms can be life threatening. Keep filtered water handy. Stock fluids in a cooler when on the road. Low fluid levels gives rise to dizziness, brain fog and puts you at risk for fainting; a brutal hazard if you are behind the wheel.

Beware of Signs of Dehydration. I like the article posted on the Mayo Clinic website which gives you a concise list of signs and symptoms to watch out for. Click here to read the article.

The Difference Between an Acupuncturist and Someone Trained in Acupuncture!

Acupuncture has helped billions of people over the past 5,000 years by relieving symptoms and uncovering the underlying root cause(s) of many health problems.

The ultimate goal of acupuncture, like chiropractic, is to activate the natural, self-healing abilities of the body. It can also strengthen and support the body to prevent future illness and disease. Acupuncture has gained wide recognition and acceptance among people who seek safe and natural care. In fact, The Archives of Internal Medicine reported that a large number of physicians are referring to or practicing some form of complementary and/or alternative medicine- acupuncture and chiropractic having the highest rate of referral. Arch Intern Med. 1998;158:2303-2310

Traditional Acupuncture

Here at Living Pure Chiropractic, Glendale acupuncturist, Dr. Philip J. Zair, uses the traditional Chinese assessment (history, tongue and pulse diagnosis) to evaluate the status of your health. It is a painless, non-invasive diagnostic technique. This allows him to determine which meridians are excessive or deficient in energy, so he can accurately choose the correct acu-points to balance your body and start your journey to better health. He also uses the Acugraph Meridian Technology Scanner which produces an informative colorful graph of meridian energies throughout the organs and glands.

A certified acupuncturist vs a Master trained Acupuncturist

Many chiropractors, doctors, physical therapists in Arizona hold a basic certification in acupuncture with minimal training (less than 300 hours). They may say "I do acupuncture." What they really mean is that they do neuromodulation (affecting neurotransmitters) or dry needling (you may have heard of this new popular term: needling trigger points of nerve pain in muscles. Their training is usually comprised of weekend seminars and home study videos. They may have had minimal to no clinical treatment experience prior to Read More by visitng our webpage on acupuncture:
